It is to check tyre pressure Air from a tyre generally at the rate of up to 2 pounds of air every Loss of air pressure from a is pronounced during warm so more regular checks are when temperatures rise.

of correct air pressure :

Valves maintain tyre pressure and air to be added or removed.

The valve in your wheel is a but very important part of vehicle as far as safety and tyre is concerned. It holds the pressure the tyre assembly and is the access to adjust your tyre A valve cap in good condition is essential as it provides a secondary and prevents dirt from inside. It is recommended to have the replaced every time tyres are changed.

If your car as though it’s pulling to the or right even though steering in a straight line it suggest a problem with wheel alignment. Incorrect can result in rapid and irregular wear and can even affect the and safety of the vehicle.

2% increase in fuel economy

Tiny weights are used to the heaviest part of the tyre and assembly.

If these weights become the wheel will wobble at higher speeds which increase tyre wear and is unsafe.

In such a situation you have your wheels on a wheel balancing machine. The rotates the tyre and wheel and automatically calculates the weight and of the balance counter weight.
